In 2011, my husband and I visited one of his sisters and her husband who were living in Provence at the time.  We also took a short trip to Normandy, where my f-i-l once landed on Omaha Beach on D-Day.  It was a memorable trip for many reasons, encompassing both the somber memories of WWII and the beauty of the south of France.

There were many attractive doors and doorways.  Here is one.

    I Like the door. I also appreciate your FIL’s contribution to D-Day. Omaha Beach was hard fought, but so necessary.

    • A double thanks, Dan. It was one of the most interesting and sobering experiences of my life. The owner of the B&B where we stayed gave us a 10-hour tour (not free, I hasten to add) that was one of the best things we’ve ever done. We explored the second day and on the third, had another tour, this time of the English and Canadian sites. Fascinating!


  4. Beautiful and inviting. Love the bell. 🙂

    Looks like a lovely spot to sit a spell on a nice day. This must have been a memorable trip for a lot of reasons 🙂

  6. The unknown is what is engaging about your capture.

  7. This entrance is so pretty, Janet. 🙂

    What a lovely doorway! I just love the gardens and plants 🙂

  9. Pink is an unusual colour for a wall but it suits this one perfectly. Your photo reminds me of Spain, where the garden is often an extension of the home and the gate serves as the ‘front door’ with a bell or intercom for visitors. It looks so relaxing and inviting.

    It’s lovely. I like the combination of the bluish-purple leaves of the climber against the pink walls.

    Beautiful gate and the patio looks well taken care of. Also love the flowers above the gate – such an interesting contrast! So do you still live in that area?

  12. pattisj says:

    Very nice. I especially like whatever that is growing along the top.

    What I’d do for some flowers right now! We just got an inch of white snow. Boo hoo. Pretty Janet! 🙂

  14. Stunning, just love the colours
